Need some inspiration to complete your script?

A few years ago, my pal Gil over at BroadwayAbridged, told me that November was National Novel Writing Month.  He pointed me to this website that sponsors a challenge/contest to writers to begin and finish a complete novel in 30 days.

Obviously I went crazy for the concept.  It combines my two favorite things:  creativity and deadlines.  (Which, by the way, may just define what a Producer is all about.)

So, of course, I thought, “Let’s make one for scripts!”

And wouldn’t you know it, someone already had!  (Which made my staff very happy, because if I start one more website, they just may change the name on the door to Davenport Website Enterprises).

The folks over at ScriptFrenzy have deemed April (which, believe it or don’t, is right around the corner), Script Writing Month . . . and they’ve started the same sort-of challenge as National Novel Writing Month:  One new script.  30 Days.  100 Pages.

They’ll let you submit any kind of script, including screenplays and TV shows, but we know what we’re focusing on, right?

It’s very Title of Show, isn’t it?

What do you win if you complete this challenge?  The most priceless prize you could imagine.

Pride.  And a brand-spanking new script.

So do it.  Challenge yourself.  Make a deadline.

And make a script.

What’s the worst that could happen?  You miss a couple episodes of Tabatha’s Salon Takeover?  You stay up just a little later?

Or maybe the worst that happens is that the script sucks?

Big deal.

Something sucking is better than nothing doing nothing.

And now, ask yourself what’s the best thing that could happen?

Maybe your script turns into Title of Show . . . or even this.
